Christmas has come early for country music fans in Suffolk as two country services are launching in the next few weeks.
Manchester-based Chris Country will be extending its reach to the area when the latest MuxCo multiplexes officially starts, and a new service from Lincs FM Group will launch with a country theme.
Suffolk First is a new digital station with a service of news, sport, entertainment, weather and traffic and travel information – within a hits and memories music service with a country music bias.
The new DAB digital radio multiplex will launch with transmitters at Puttocks Hill, Mendlesham and Warren’s Heath with a further transmitter at Felixstowe in October. BBC Radio Suffolk, Heart, Smooth and Fun Kids will also be part of the line-up.
Gregory Watson, Managing Director of MuxCo says: “We’re excited to be activating our 10th MuxCo-branded multiplex in Suffolk at the end of the month. We’re already broadcasting over 60 radio stations to millions of people across the network and we’re looking forward to bringing local DAB to another county”.
